We’ve all heard of slow food and slow travel. We practiced being slow tourists today. We didn’t even open our eyes until after 8:30 am, and started out from our apt after 10 am with a “kinda” plan in mind.
First was a trip to Musee d’Orsay, a magnificent former train station still sporting huge clocks to keep travellers on time.
But now the museum houses the largest collection of Impressionistic paintings in the world, hundreds of additional works including sculpture, furniture, artifacts, and currently a Rousseau exhibit. We looked, sat, admired, ate ( at one of three eateries inside), walked, marveled.
One of Toulouse -Lautrec’s works, a collaboration with Tiffany, caught my eye. Her opera glasses are just like mine!
All part of our Slow Paris day!
